According to the Hindu mythology all these destinations are associated with lots of myths & narratives. The yamunotri is associated with goddess yamuna & known as the origin of river Yamuna. Whereas the holy place Gangotri is the abode of Goddess Ganga and the well-head of river Ganga.

The other two destinations Badrianth & Kedarnath are associated with Lord Vishnu & Shiva.
